Commercial Space Transportation Safety Approval Performance Criteria, 20070-20071 [2011-8534]

Download as PDF 20070 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 69 / Monday, April 11, 2011 / Notices 421, NYSE Arca Rule 9.4 and FINRA Rule 2251, which were published for public comment in the Federal Register and approved by the Commission, and for which no comments were received.19 Because proposed Rule 3.22(a) is substantially similar to the ISE, NYSE Arca and FINRA rules, it raises no new regulatory issues. The Commission also believes that good cause exists to grant accelerated approval to proposed Rule 3.22(b), which conforms the Exchange’s rules to the requirements of Section 6(b)(10) of the Act. Section 6(b)(10) of the Act, enacted under Section 957 of the DoddFrank Act, does not provide for a transition phase, and requires rules of national securities exchanges to prohibit broker voting on the election of a member of the board of directors of an issuer (except for a vote with respect to the uncontested election of a member of the board of directors of any investment company registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940), executive compensation, or any other significant matter, as determined by the Commission by rule. The Commission believes that good cause exists to grant accelerated approval to proposed Rule 3.22(b), because it will conform the Exchange rule to the requirements of Section 6(b)(10) of the Act. Moreover, proposed Rule 3.22(b) is substantially similar to ISE Rule 421 and Nasdaq Rule 2251.20 V. Conclusion It is therefore ordered, pursuant to Section 19(b)(2) of the Act,21 that the proposed rule change (SR–EDGA–2011– 08) be, and it hereby is, approved on an accelerated basis. For the Commission, by the Division of Trading and Markets, pursuant to delegated authority.22 Cathy H. Ahn, Deputy Secretary.
